When it comes to transferring photos from iPhone to computer, there is no doubt that the first answer emerges in our mind is iTunes. Indeed, iTunes does great in syncing photos from Mac to iPhone, but not vice versa.

All of them can be used to download photos from your old iPad or iPad mini/Air/Pro to Mac.
